Happy Father’s Day From The Evolution Of Dad Project
Posted Jun 15 2009 10:23pm
Since Father’s Day is right around the corner, I was looking around YouTube trying to find some videos inspired by dad to share with you. I quickly came across this Father’s Day special put together by Dana Glazer, director of the Evolution of Dad Project, that documents some very special and personal messages from people in and around New York City. Check it out.
The Father’s Day Video Special:
The Evolution Of Dad Project went around New York city and interviewed people about their fathers. In this video people from all walks of life and ages share stories, good or bad, about their father and what he means to them. It’s touching to see how far reaching a father’s influence is in the life of his kids and it’s a sobering reminder that the actions dads take today will have a profound effect on many lives going forward.
What is the Evolution Of Dad Project?
Watch this video and get a good idea of what the project is all about. It’s a touching video and one that you’ll want to share if you’re passionate about being there as a father and breaking the molds about how people think of dads today.
Here’s a little blurb from their website which describes the project in more detail:
The Evolution of Dad is a documentary-in-progress about what it means to be an involved, contemporary American father. The film will explore how fatherhood has evolved over time, what its impact has been on family and society; and lastly, how fatherhood will likely continue to evolve. The overall intention is to create a film that is inspiring, thought-provoking and profound.
What Do You Want To Say?
We all have a “special” relationship with our fathers…some are better than others and we’ve all been affected by the actions of our dads. Since Father’s Day is this weekend what special message would you like to say to your old man?
It might be hard to share with others but I’d love to hear from you about how, good or bad, your father shaped your life. If you liked this post be sure to subscribe to my free RSS feed or my free email updates. That way you won’t miss a single upcoming article.
